It's a toss up. There are things I like better about each.
Generally speaking, I find Hot Fuzz more entertaining than Shaun. Specifically, in a genre-to-genre, in their intentional tribute/homage state, Hot Fuzz is better at it.
They're right next to each other on the shelf and when I go for Shaun, I've grabbed HF instead. That's happened the last few times. First frame to last, the writing is much better in HF.
That's how I feel about it. I'm not going to try and convince you otherwise, so don't bother trying with me.
much love to Kq for another in a line of the greatest x-mas presents!!!!
Hot Fuzz was more ambitious than Shaun of the Dead, funnier than Shaun of the Dead and just completely better in all ways than Shaun of the Dead.*
The only people who disagree are people who are in love with certain genres so much so that they can't see past their own bias.
DRAG ME TO HELL IS COMPLETELY OVER RATED!!!
*I admit... it's a thin margin and Shaun of the Dead is great.
